Newly imagined private accommodation for London Metropolitan University

In the Holloway Road campus of London Metropolitan University (LMU), the international student’s hub is a space bustling with life. LMU, the home of over 10,000 students underwent key changes in their accommodation space.  For example, the Technishield 65 Shoreditch Edition fire rated systems complete the space and contribute to the BREEAM: Excellent rating. Furthermore, this accomplishment spans the entire fit out from the study spaces to the gym. The university that boasts diversity in all areas from their range of courses to their cosmopolitan community. Most importantly, clients opted for safety as well as style in their choice of partition systems.

Fire rated for good reason

To sum up, Holloway Road’s accommodation has successfully upgraded its fire security with our Technishield 65 EI60 partitions. The 65mm wide frame combined with a chosen glass thickness is what creates an insulated/integrity seal. Firstly, the glass door can offer either a 30/30 or 60/60 fire rating. In addition, the fire-rated partition can protect students leaving the building from a fire on the opposite side of our Technishield 65 fire rated partition for up to 60 minutes. In short, this technology is top of the range and has further been adjusted in view of current safety regulations in mind. We have expanded the fire rated properties of our partition, even when assembling the Technishield 65, as the fire rated silicon joints hold the partition together under extreme heat.

 

Fire rated doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish…

However, to finish the LMU private accommodation contemporary ground floor space, we included our Shoreditch Edition bands which stretch the length of the partition, creating a lattice effect. Often called New York Loft style, we proudly display this style of partition boasting our willingness to mould our design to fit most unique architectural ideas. In conclusion, our ability to create bespoke designs is unrivaled, proven through this project. Furthermore, this uncommon use of contemporising a fire rated partition doesn’t affect the integrity of the system. Most importantly, still giving up to 60 mins of fire protection.
